Instructions

  1. 1

    Clear the garage area so it is a large empty room, removing any stored items. Clean the floor of any dust and debris.

  2. 2

    Place the large rug in the centre of the garage floor; this will cover the concrete flooring so it is more comfortable to walk on.

  3. 3

    Place the entertainment centre against a wall near an electrical socket. If no outlet is easily accessible, use an extension cord to provide an electrical source for your TV, lamp and heater.

  4. 4

    Put the TV on the entertainment centre and plug it in.

  5. 5

    Put the table lamp on top of the entertainment centre and plug it into the extension cord or outlet.

  6. 6

    Place the sofa in front of the entertainment centre. Leave enough room in between the two to place the coffee table and to allow for easy navigation.

  7. 7

    Place the coffee table in between the sofa and the entertainment centre. Leave space for leg room between the sofa and the table.

  8. 8

    Position the space heater or air conditioning unit in an out of the way area near the electrical socket to regulate the temperature of the garage.
